06828823 is referenced by 32 patents.

An integrated circuit includes non-volatile and volatile memory, with the volatile memory controlling the integrated circuit's functionality. Various techniques are disclosed for programming the different types of memory through one or more data ports to provide in-system programmability and dynamic reconfigurability. External configuration devices are not required if the data from the non-volatile memory is transferred directly to the volatile memory.
